The Story So Far

United are 20/21 for victory at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium but Anderlecht are not a team to be underestimated as the Belgian league leaders have won five of their past six European home games, with only St-Etienne winning there in that time.

Rene Weiler will feel that his side simply have to win this week's first leg if they are to have any chance of qualifying as Anderlecht have never won a game in England (drawn two, lost thirteen), with Boylesports going 10/3 about a home win on Thursday.

Anderlecht have enjoyed a decent campaign in Europe as they were runners up to St-Etienne in Group C before beating Zenit on away goals in the knockout stages and they then overcame APOEL in the last-sixteen.

United, who were runners up in Group A, thrashed St-Etienne 4-0 on aggregate before beating Rostov to reach the quarter-finals and Jose Mourinho's men are now unbeaten in six European outings (won five, drawn one).

Low Scoring

United's past three Europa League fixtures have each involved two goals or les and it seems unlikely that Jose Mourinho will want to give too much away, with under 2.5 goals looking like a stand-out option at 4/5 (Betfred).

Under 2.5 goals has paid out in four of United's five away games in the Europa League this season, while it is worth noting that Anderlecht are superb defensively, with the Belgian outfit conceding just one goal in their past five matches in all competitions.

Ibrahimovic v Anderlecht

Anderlecht have gone 192 minutes without conceding a goal in Europe but they will be dreading having to face Zlatan Ibrahimovic again as the Swede scored five goals in two matches against them whilst playing for Paris Saint-Germain.

Ibrahimovic has been in good form in the Europa League, scoring five goal in 717 minutes of action, and he is 15/4 to score first or 6/5 to score at anytime (Bet Victor).
